Pastel Sketch and Art Conference Reminder, Photos
I sketched out on the porch yesterday. I took out my Pan Pastels to sketch them. The list has "new art supply" on it. Instead I decided to sketch with them! I didn't seem to have the right little tools for detail so added a bit with pastel sticks at the end. It was fun and kept me occupied for about an hour. I sketched on MiTientes paper so that I wouldn't feel bad about tossing it as practice. It is about 8 x 10 inches.

It was nice out but windy again. Gene put up a tarp so we could have shade and be out of the sun. It worked pretty well. Maybe we will use it again.
A cottontail rabbit that Gene kept seeing. We waited for him to get closer but I had to get this from about 30 feet away through the window.
A reminder, too, that there is a regional arts conference happening in Bastrop in a few weeks. If you sign up by Tuesday you get a big discount. You should plan on going. There are many, many classes, demos, vendors and more in a wide variety of media. Some of the talks and demos are free with the pass. Very good teachers and speakers. Bastrop is a nice place to visit. There are bed and breakfasts that are unique, live music, local restaurants and much to see and do besides the conference. Take your family!
